The Corrosive Challenge #130 - Girlie

Gee, is it Sunday already? I feel like I haven't slept all weekend with everything, crafty and otherwise, that has been going on here this weekend! Maybe this will teach me not to procrastinate so much.... Nah! So last minute or not, here I am with your Corrosive Challenge for the week! This time around we want you to go "Girlie"! That's right - bling, flowers, ribbons, lace, charms, pink.... If it's girlie, we want to see it!

I have used an image from our sponsor this month, Simply Betty Stamps. I am having so much fun working with these images and this one is called Rio Birthday Girl. She can be found here in the SBS shop. It is perfect for my best friend's daughter, who turns 13 next month. (Well, would you look at that? A card made a whole month in advance! I guess I don't wait until the last minute with everything after all! lol) She is done up in shades of purple and black so that she is girlie and goth at the same time. The sketch is #169 from Sketch Saturday, but my image is fussy cut instead of being a rectangular panel. I used my usual embellishments, which are always girlie anyway; that's just my style. Though it's hard to see in the photo the Tim Holtz token says "unique".

I am off to go back to bed for a few hours until the small man wakes up. I'm looking forward to spending the day with him, hopefully cooling off in my brother's pool.. It's supposed to be a warm and humid one here today.

Thanks for visiting and hope you have a fabulous day!

Great card so purply and lush! Isn't it great when you get something done way ahead of time! Of course then for me, it's irritating cause I can't show it off cause the darn image isn't released! LOL Again great job Regan!
